Velvet for Goths

Velvet is a timeless favourite, a truely indulgent  fabric, plus its always been a Goth closet staple. Velvet is a versatile winter fabric to work into your evening wardrobe to give you a majestic feel. No texture can compare to this splendid textile which conjures up images of Historical Wealth, the mysterious  Lady of the Night and fabled Vampire stories.

We love this Long Black Velvet and Net Vampire Dress which is feminine and flattering with its black velvet bodice which is trimmed with brocade knots down the front, zips to the back and a high back which forms a vampire collar around the neck. The skirt is made from tiered very soft black ruched mesh trimmed with black lace, add a festive twist with a pair of statement earrings from Alchemy Gothic.

The Black Velvet Off Shoulder Fishtail Dress by Sinister is fast becoming a  desired object for pale-skinned temptress' seductions and we couldn't agree more when worn off the shoulder to show just enough flesh.  The fishtail skirt of the dress is short at the front and long at the back and trimmed with tulle mesh frill and black satin roses offer a hint of exposure.
This Jessica Velvet Gothic Dress offers a laidback, vintage inspired alternative by Spin Doctor. Its fitted  waist and gentle flare above the knee shows off all your curves.This little number has a stiffened scalloped neckline with off-shoulder sleeves and elasticated straps. (Available in Black, Red and Green)

If you are looking to add a little velvet to your usual attire then we have some beautifully crafted coats, our top picks are: this exquisite Lilianne Velvet Fishtail Hooded Coat by Sinister black velvet with loads of black brocade trimming and frog fastenings down the front. The hood is lined with grey-black satin and at the back is adjustable velvet ribbon lacing and velvet bows which are utterley spell-binding.

Or if you prefer something a little more straight laced, then our Victorian fitted velvet black gothic jacket with black lace trimming around the hem and  flared cuffs. The stunning and sexy corset style back has a thick black satin ribbon which is laced through silver D-rings.   This jacket is smartly tailored to fit perfectly and is made of the highest quality soft velvet.
